Microchip's PolarFire Video and Imaging Kit offers a high-performance evaluation of 4K image processing and rendering using dual camera sensors as well as numerous display interfaces. The kit is purpose-built for effortless prototyping of popular imaging and video protocols including MIPI CSI-2 TX, MIPI CSI-2 RX, HDMI 1.4 TX, HDMI2.0, DSI, and HD/3G SDI.
With a 300K logic element (LE) PolarFire FPGA with DDR4 and SPI-flash the kit is ideally suited for mid-bandwidth imaging and video applications. The PolarFire device on-board optimizes input/outputs (I/Os), transceiver rates, look-up table (LUT4) architecture, memories and DSPs for mid-density/mid-bandwidth ranges, to deliver a superior solution at a much lower power and lower total cost of ownership.
The kit is part of our broader Smart Embedded Vision solutions to open up new possibilities to implement systems that rely on visual data to make decisions across a broad spectrum of applications like Drones, Machine Vision, Thermal Imaging, Gaming, Video Surveillance, Robotics, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Machine Learning, and HMI.
